My friend always says "Don't look at me in that tone of voice" - which pisses me off slightly because it doesn't make any sense.

Theres a lot of strange ones that everyone uses like "Clean as a Whistle" and "Mad as a box of frogs" which don't make sense because since when was a Whistle particularly clean?

I think the best phrase I have ever heard was from "Blackadder" which goes "I know from long experience that my men have all the artistic talent of a cluster of colourblind hedgehogs... in a bag." haha!
I saw you were sick and tired of my wrong turns.
If you only knew the way I feel,
I'd really love to tell you,
But I could never seem to say
The things I needed to.
On a day like today
No other words would do.
